Well did you do the back hill?
It looks like they did. Jump to 9:38.

Time to quit screwing around and get back in shape. On a single speed.
Nope. I went up the front just to see how the new ride would handle hill climbs. Not too bad.
I think I could have kept up with the pace, but probably not the distance.How many miles?
70 miles, 3,200 feet of climbing, averaged 17
You seem to spend an inordinate amount of time doing internet research - tags, WR accessories, jackets, boots, and the like.
Aren't you on a mission overseas? Don't you have terrorists to kill, WMD to find, a nation of nubile women and innocent children to protect from villainous thuggery?
Get to it... unless of course you are surfing the web on your sat phone with one hand while working a M2 machine gun from the turret of your Humvee with the other, in which case, carry on.
Going thru some old Photobucket uploads, found several group shots of members here. Some are not even a year old, some date back 6+ years...
LOL, I'm a Signal Corps pogue. My job is to watch the green light and fix the network when the light turns red. To paraphrase Nathaniel Fick, "The enlisted infantry is the Army. Everyone else, including infantry officers, are there for support."
I have about $2,000 in gear on my shopping list:
IMS 3.0 gal Fuel Tank
Olympia AST II Jacket
Olympia Ranger 3 Over Pants
Alpinestars Scout WP Boots
Wolfman Side Racks
Wolfman Teton Saddle Bags
Wolfman Enduro Tank Bag
Seat Concepts Seat
AMS WR250R/X Triangle Rack
Flatland Racing Skid Plate
Slipstreamer S-06 Spitfire Windshield
Flatland Racing Radiator Guard
I also have another $1400 on a wish list. Reading books and doing research keeps the mind engaged until the end of the tour when I finally start making purchases.
Yeah, I did that too....did a paltry 20 miles on the 29'er on the gravel roads around here, but it felt like 100 miles. The little hilly roads around me were pure snot and some still had patches of ice...it was like pedaling up syrup.
And, my endurance is for shit so I was wiped out by the time I limped home.
I averaged a respectable 7.9mph.
Here is my new jacket it is the Firstgear Rainier. I like it pretty well. Real warm. I got the pants that go with it. The only thing I dont like is how heavy it is and the fit around my neck is not great. I haven't tested it in the rain yet.
I've been wearing the Firstgear TPG Teton for a couple years now. Really like it although like Alan the neck doesn't fit me quite right, too tight, can't snap the last button.
I'd opt out of the Speedohealer and just use a GPS, kill two birds with one stone. I rarely, if ever, look at my speedo on the WR anyway.
I'd suggest the Unabiker guard over the Flatland rad guard. I think it may be cheaper, too. Top shelf stuff.
We went out Friday and experienced the same thing, snotty roads,. I was so happy when we hit pavement. It was all worth it being in shorts in January on my bike. Followed up with a jeep trip to Harley Tim's Saturday to sit outside and plan a trip to Mexico. Walked the dog today in a pair of shorts also. Looks like I'll be packing the shorts away for awhile after today.
What no pics of you in spandex? :huh Actually we thank you...lol
I WAS going to say "That's not a Bald Spot. Flagger, show them what a Bald Spot looks like".
Mark, Glad the damage to man and machine sounds manageable.
I was out making more videos of shooting crab apples with shotguns, clearing trail of brush with chainsaws, and playing in the mud on my WRR.
There was no spandex involved in the activities above
I picked up a Teton as well last summer and really like it. Plenty of pockets, waterproof, decent venting, and sturdy so far. Neck is a bit snug but I usually don't snap it anyways.
